More info

The Zapotec were a pre-Columbian civilization that flourished in the Valley of Oaxaca in Mesoamerica. Archaeological evidence reveal their culture going back at least 2,500 years. Remnants of the ancient city of Monte Alban in the form of buildings, ball courts, magnificent tombs, and finely worked gold jewelry testify of their once great civilization. Monte Alban was one of the first major cities in Mesoamerica and the center of the Zapotec state that dominated much of the territory that today belongs to the Mexican state of Oaxaca.

In a game of Zapotec you build temples, cornfields, and villages in the three valleys surrounding the capital to generate resources needed for building pyramids, making sacrifices to the gods and performing rituals.

Contents: 1 main board, 4 player boards, 27 action cards, 10 ritual cards, 4 reference cards, 45 building tiles, 36 trade tiles, 9 scoring tiles, 4 palace tiles, 36 wooden houses, 20 wooden discs, 24 plastic pyramid pieces, 80+ resource tokens, 27 solo mode cards
